A portfolio of some very stylized photographs she did for Saks Fifth Avenue was her first big breakthrough into the fashion photography world. Subsequently, her work first appeared in Vogue in the 1970s. Since then she has been a dominant figure in contemporary photography. Turbeville has authored many books, including Unseen Versailles, Wallflower, Studio St. Petersburg, Past Imperfect 1978-1997, and Casa No Name.
Nailing it in the book’s foreword, Franca Sozzani says, ‘Her pictures are not about fashion, even though she respects fashion. Dazed Digital: What motivated a book on your fashion photography after all these years?

Vogue Italia's Franca Sozzani, who worked with Deborah Turbeville for more than 30 years, recalls an uncompromising photographer. See the Observer's obituaries of 2013 in full here. People in the fashion world like more commercial photographers and she never cared to become commercial. Plus, she had to like what she was doing for the passion to be there. And a few days before she died, we agreed to do a book together around her pictures of the great aristocratic Italian families. It is a beautiful and sad thing to be doing now that she is not here, but I am very happy and proud to be doing it. For me, she is among the greatest photographers.
Deborah Turbeville follows her own idiosyncratic path. Her images are haunting, scratched, dusty. Turbeville follows her own dreams with her photography, and she creates beauty and timeless mysteries, and lighting with great lucidity and power. Colors are powdered down, and the black and white fashion shoots seem almost submerged.
Acclaimed photographer Deborah Turbeville is one of the rare talents who has managed to bridge the world of fine art and commercial fashion photography seamlessly - her images are instantly identifiable, often moody and quietly poetic shots that evoke a certain amount of melancholy and, intriguingly, warmth, at the same time.
